What’s it like to be a Project Manager?

In this next chapter of our project management series we want to explore ‘what it’s like to be a Project Manager’.

Because a Project Manager has complete responsibility for the delivery of a project, they are a key decision maker, and people look to you to get things done.  For the duration of the project it’s up to you to assemble and coordinate the resources (people, equipment, etc) that may be necessary.

You won’t get bored!  Although a Project Manager uses tried and tested project methodologies to get things done, every project is different and throws up new challenges.  On each project you’ll often be working with different people, different business goals and adopt different solutions.

As a Project Manager you’ll often be managing multiple projects at the same time, unless you are working on a large construction or IT project.  This means that each project will be at different stages of their lifecycle and you’ll have days when you are very busy, and others where things are much quieter.  The quieter times are often used to catch up on admin work, look at ways to improve project management procedures, or to get training in other related areas like Negotiation Skills, Facilitation Skills, Communication Skills.

Finally, a Project Manager gains a great deal of satisfaction when a project is completed on time, within budget and with a happy customer.  Because you, as the Project Manager, are responsible for the project, it’s only right that you get the recognition you deserve!
